Together both the tutor and the participant will deconstruct the terms of what it means to b e a citizen\, upset its definition as based on a principle of exclusion\, a nd redefine it as practice rather than status. The length of each tutorial will be negotiated on site between each participant and tutor\, ranging fro m five minutes to an hour.
